Gratitude for My First Yoga Teacher

400 463 Admin Main

I grew-up in rural Indiana. No one knew what yoga meant. Well, one of my classmate’s father was a psychologist which was considered cosmopolitan. HE might have known what yoga was but I didn’t. So when I was a freshmen in college I saw it was offered and decided to find out.  I had no…

Your Adversary

Your Adversary Might Be Your Friend

764 557 Admin Main

It might seem counterintuitive but an adversary could be one of the strongest candidates for a future friend. Why is that? Because in conflict we show our hot button issues and vulnerabilities. This reveals a lot about ourselves which creates a type of intimacy. So if you are in conflict with someone but able to handle yourself with integrity, a…

The Rasta in All of Us

The Rasta in All of Us

I’ve been learning about the Rastafari way. Both because I seem to have an innate drive to understand different spiritual practices and because I will be going to Jamaica with my family later this year and want to deepen my understanding while there. I’ll share more detail about the principles and practices later – like how I’m trying a…

What Are the Words Written on Your Heart?

766 448 Admin Main

When I first heard Matisyahu’s Akeda album it was like I already knew all the words. And the sounds. Like they were written on my heart. I wonder what this means? If you’ve had an experience like this, please share it with me.

I Love Mandalas Chakras

I Love Mandalas

771 525 Admin Main

I really love them. They’ve resonated with me at a deep level since I first saw one. I can look at mandalas for hours. I had a t-shirt with an embroidered lotus flower mandala that got at a Grateful Dead show when I was 17. Even though it was just a t-shirt, it was so special…

Airbnb Experiment in Closeness

Airbnb Experiment in Closeness

765 409 Admin Main

I undertook an experiment awhile ago. It didn’t start consciously but it ended that way. I decided to get to know different parts of Los Angeles by moving to a new part of town each week. Isn’t airbnb great? It was a way of getting to know the city more deeply, forcing myself out of my comfort zone…

Beautiful Experience

Beautiful Experience

You never know when a breakthrough will happen. Today was one of those days. Earlier this week, a new business colleague did something ethically questionable. I was torn. The old me would have given her the benefit of the doubt, had a candid conversation about the situation then been surprised and disappointed when it reoccurred. Now…

3 Minutes of Sacredness

3 Minutes of Sacredness

768 320 Admin Main

You can go three weeks without food, three weeks without water but only three minutes without air. Our breath is our lifeblood. Air is the element of the heart chakra. The heart is where blood mixes with oxygen from the lungs. The elixir of life. So think of how much you need air. How you…

Opportunity Cost

Opportunity Cost

What an important concept. I remember when I was first exposed to it in business school. Clouds parted. I realized how important it is to apply this principle not just in business but through all dimensions of life. Had a powerful experience recently that underscores this point. About 5 months ago, my yoga practice had stalled-out. I…
